Want to meet, learn from and share ideas with other women interested in making games? Join WIG Boston and Code Liberation for a FREE game development workshop on the eve of PAX East!

Code Liberation events are trans-inclusive and women-only. Women of all skill levels and walks of life are invited to attend this workshop. If you don’t have any experience in game development, don’t worry! This workshop is open to all levels of learners. Space is limited so sign up soon to secure your spot!

The event venue requires a guest list, thus all workshop participants must register by name for the event. As such, Eventbrite will only issue one ticket per registration. Thank you for understanding.

The event is made possible by the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI). Workshop participants will recieve complimentary passes to the MassDiGI “Made in MA Party” happening at the same time and in the same building as the workshop. Stop in at the party to get inspired! Massachuetts-based game development companies will be demonstrating their latest games in the exhibition area.
